Nice place right on the canal. Sat on the covered porch and it was roomy and comfortable. Had a cup of Md crabsoup. Had very little crab taste and mostly tomatoes. Also had fried oysters and chicken salad entrée. I think they called it the Eastern Shore Platter. Oysters were well prepared but were kind of bland tasting. Told that... More

This is a nice place to eat. The service and the food were excellent. While sitting at the umbrella bar, we saw a huge car carrier ship come down the canal -- that was as added feature since it is right on the water.

Historic building in Chesapeake City. It's great to eat on the covered terrace with the C&D with the ships passing about 100 feet away. The also have a nice outdoor bar for drinks and food. Located for easy walking to all the shops in town. The food and service are very good, and the fried oysters are a favorite.

It's the kind of place that is very nice, with truly excellent food - and could be stuffy but it's just so friendly that it's not at... More

Lots of history in this town and you can feel it as you dine in the Bayard House .. on the patio, the porch, or the dining room .. a feeling of a "mini Williamsburg"

The ambiance of this place is top notch with its serene historical terrace on the waterfront. We enjoyed the menu, especially the appetizers.
